Model: TL-R600VPN
Hardware Version: V4
Firmware Version: 4.0.3 Build 20180817 Rel.53740

I have a TL-R600VPN with site-to-site IPSEC vpn established. I need to setup a failover WAN (working), but I need the VPN tunnel to also switch over to the failover WAN when the primary WAN goes down (not working).

The IPSEC tunnel is set to authenticate locally with Name, not IP--so it would work fine for purposes of the tunnel. I just can't get it to switch to the backup WAN link when the primary goes down.

I also tried creating a second tunnel bound to the secondary WAN, but cannot do that either due to overlapping local and remote subnets.

Any assistance would be much appreciated!

Hi bl1585

 

The feature you need is VPN failover. Unfortunately TL-R600VPN doesn't support VPN failover, cannot meet you demand.

The VPN failover means that when the WAN port fail, the VPN tunnel will switch to other WAN.

Moreover, even on other models it will not work. Even new TL-ER6120 (version 3) could have same remote local network setup, but it didn't work. It is so weird, that tp-link doesn't want to add this VPN Failover, while I bet, that VPN-routers with several WANs are used for it :/

Same things, dude. I hope they will resolve such issues.
